White flowers in large pyramidal shaped panicles. Plants flower around 24-30 inches tall. One of the showiest and easiest of the Saxifraga to grow. Plants have large showy, pyramidal shaped flower panicles. The panicles are made up of branched flowers produced in great numbers. The flowers are fragrantly scented. Each single, cup shaped flower is white in color and is held on arching stems that face upward and as the panicles bloom they arc as the bloom progression moves closer to the top. The foliage is attractive, with dense rosettes of 3 inch long, narrow leaves with pointed tips - looking some what like a 'hens-and chicks' The leaves are edged in white. Plants flower in late spring. Very nice as a cut flower. Plants can be grown in the garden, in pots, troughs or the rock garden. Best in part shade or open shade in moderately moist soil. Takes more winter moisture than most other Saxifraga grown.
